OF REINFORCEMENT BASKETS
Construction automation at Skanska
The construction industry is today exposed to fierce competition and needs to sharpen its processes, both in terms of cost and time. At present, the industry has a low degree of automation. The goal of the project was to develop a new application for automated assembly of reinforcement baskets for different types of concrete structures, a process that is today done by hand. The automated concept uses a robot system with three industrial robots.
For Robotdalen, the project included a simulation of the entire concept, tool development and a physically scaled-down demonstrator. The project also included design and construction as well as project management and system architecture of the entire concept.
In the video below, you see Skanska's head of research Ulf Håkansson, as well as Robotdalen's project manager Erik Hellström and innovation support Peter Stany, talk about the project.
